Excellent

We were 5 and only 1 of 2 tables served that evening. The food was outstanding and the service right up there. It' s been the most expensive meal of our ongoing Northern Spain trip but worth it. Its Michelin star is well deserved.

My wife and I booked 21 persons for lunch at Arbidel, for a birthday party on a Tuesday afternoon. We ordered the Degustation menu. Wow, what a treat. We were there for over 3 hours, thoroughly enjoying the experience. Quite frankly, we were worried that taking 19 American guests for such an experience would be a problem with so many... More

The owner of the inn we were staying in recommended another restaurant which we could not find. So, wondering around this lovely little town we saw what looked like a street sign but was, in fact, a sign for this restaurant. Hidden down a little lane we found it, and, as we were somewhat off schedule for normal dining in... More

Although extremely expensive, the food was innovative and delicous. The seafood is top-notch with accommodating interesting preparations. My party of 6, all loved the black-squid-ink rice, which was freshy, salty and unusual in the most pleasant way. I was surprise that this tasting profile was enjoyed by even our younger "fast food" companions. Truly unique ways of preparing traditional northern... More

Our friends who live in Ribadesella took us there during our one week stay with them and it was the gastronomical highlight of our time in Spain! My husband and I were stunned by the unique tastes created by the extremely talented chef and the friendly, professional and helpful service provided. We were in awe of how a simple rice... More

As owners now for some 5 years of a holiday home on the coast of Asturias, we are delighted that the region which we adore for its spectacular land- and seascapes, as well as its sumptuous gastronomy is also the home of several Michelin - accoladed talents as Jaime Jose Uz Diaz, Nacho Marzano and José Antonio Campoviejo.

Not having booked, we were fortunately early enough in the evening to get a table (they were turning people away later). We had been told about the 30 euro taster menu but did not expect it to be available in high season so it was more than a pleasant surprise to find that it was. It was simply terrific value....

Taster menu. Staff attentive, but then we were the only guests. Standards were high. Location in a built up part of the town, but quiet.

My wife and I have been lucky enough to visit several top quality restaurants, and Arbidel did not disappoint. We had the €30 (per person) tasting menu (does not include bread or drinks) and was amazing value for money. The dishes were all fairly small as you would imagine with a tasting menu but we did not leave hungry. As... More
